Tuesday, June 01, 2010      26 comments

So, over the weekend I received more verification that, no matter what the ads say (and they mostly say “no, what do they say?”) my body reacts very poorly to High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). There was a point a few years ago when they were... Read more

Life's been rough and I don't want to talk about it. The folks who know me- you are welcome to stop by for a drink on the (back) patio and chat. Do you have cloves? Those are good too. I'm not putting it out here, many apologies. Any pr... Read more

Tuesday, May 04, 2010      13 comments

My mother in law swears by her pedometer- my father in law tries to make fun of how she clips it to her waistband while she's going to brush her teeth, before she's even gotten dressed! I say "tries" because she has no shame that she is countin... Read more
